    Why is there no TV signal from the aerial port?

    Aerial Specialists

    Hello
    I have been trying to get my TV to connect to an aerial point of the home, but there apparently no TV signal.
    This is an aerial port I have not used before and features two cables from the point. The aerial seems to have worked fine through other ports in the past.
    Has anyone any advice on this issue?

    "Hi there,
    This could be just a loose connection somewhere between the TV and the aerial itself – this is worth checking by following along the wires where possible.
    Additionally, you could check that there is no fault with the TV’s port – so you could try and connect the aerial port to another TV.
    The aerial could be disconnected from this aerial port, seeing as this is one you’ve not used before. The aerial could easily be connected to other ports.
    Alternatively, could the aerial itself be the problem. Is it an old aerial or potentially been damaged recently?
    If you cannot find an issue between your TV and the aerial then it may be best to contact an aerial specialist to check this out for you. "

    "The cable behind the socket that runs to your aerial is broken.
    Or if it runs from your aerial to an amp. The amp may not work or not have any power going to it.
    The cable may be disconnected from the aerial.
    There are a few things that could be causing no TV signal."

    "Hard to say without seeing it may be just the socket is faulty /not connected properly . Maybe was never connected in loft or sky /or some other company used it
    To save running a cable if other rooms are working its not your aerial"

    "Hi,
    There could be a couple of reasons. It could be the cable that leads to the TV could be damaged, IE - the plug that connects from the lead to the TV or it could be that the lead has water in it that had been let in from a low budget aerial, this is very common from call backs that I have attended.

    It could be something as little as the aerial moving which can be caused by the weather. It may also be a good idea to go to your settings on your TV and re-tune your television.

    Hope this helps,
    Many thanks,
    Jason."
